“We’ll keep it simple.” These are always my famous last words as I invite my family to a picnic. It’s about getting together and catching up. In my family it’s also about the food. I have already reached out to my grandniece to have her make my mother’s special strudel. People will bring something wonderful and we’ll have too much food. Memorial Day will give us another opportunity to demonstrate our lack of restraint!
After such a crummy winter, I couldn’t believe my ears. Today the beloved husband said, “Now that it’s spring and the trees have leaves, I can’t see the mailbox.” What can I say? He’s a renaissance man!
My step-daughter came east for a business conference so we will get to spend some time with her. It’s always great to have an opportunity to connect. A few good hours of conversation is better than longer stays with everyone’s nose in their cell phones or Nooks.
Fruit juice or bust! I have been easing into a healthier diet with more fruits and vegetables and less meat. I am sticking my foot in the vegan water so to speak and so far it’s been good. We have a local grocery store that is a wonderful and tempting place to shop for organic fresh produce. It’s more work to prepare but I hope to get the knack of being quick and organized. Suggestions invited.
I hate season finales! A few years back I did a whole post on this and yet again we are subjected to a bunch of stupid cliffhangers. The last episode is my least favorite show of the series. What’s wrong with leaving people with a feel good feeling for the summer? Honestly, in a day or two I totally forget about the show!
